Adding a new baby to the family

I have a 27 month old girl and am due on Feb 9th with girl #2
We live in a modest, 2 bedroom house and I'm worried about how the sleeping situation is going to work out in such tight quarters. The baby will be in my room for the first month or so but after that, do they share rooms? Seems too early, I mean my 2 year old sleeps through the night...
I'm wondering, has anyone the same situation? What was your experience? Did baby wake up your toddler? Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks, Good luck to you! I'm hoping also, that the baby doesn't wake her up. I don't wanna contend with two of them in the middle of the night!
I guess we shall see!

I am expecting my second in May and I have a 16 month old. I am also concerned about the sleeping situation when baby is old enough to be in a crib all night. I have read that a white noise machine helps. We use a humidifier to get her used to the noise.
